Planned in 2016 and realized in 2017 “Via Verde” (Green Way) tries to reduce high pollution levels and make Mexico City less grim. It should produce oxygen for 2500 people and filter 27.000 tons of gases, capture 5000 kg of dust and to process more than 10.000 kg of heavy metals. The project first came to light when Change.org published the initiative and collected 80.000 signatures. As a result, the city council approved the project. The project consists of up t 60.000 m2 of vertical gardens on highway columns with drip irrigation systems using rain water. Designed by architect Fernand Ortiz Monasterio from Verde Vertical Via Verde aspires to become the world’s largest nature-urban regeneration project.
